Joint Health and Safety Committee Training Requirements
As of March 1, 2016, new JHSC training standards came into effect. Health & Safety Professionals Inc. has submitted its application to the Ministry of Labour (MOL), and is awaiting further direction.
The Ministry of Labour Basic Certification Training Program is a two-part process that consists of this Basic Certification Training - Part I and additional Workplace Specific Hazard Training - Part II.
New Regulatory Requirements for Working at Heights in Construction
The Ministry of Labour released two new working at heights training standards; one for training programs, and the other for training providers. Beginning April 1, 2015, workers on construction projects who use:
will need to be trained to the new standards. Only approved providers who meet stringent program and trainer requirements can offer the program. Workers who receive training prior to April 1, 2015 under the current requirements, have two years, in which to complete the new training.
What does this mean for HSPI customers?
If you have taken our current Working at Heights course, and work in the construction industry, you have a two-year grace period. If you would like to take our current four-hour course, prior to April 1, 2015, contact us to arrange an in-house course.
Will HSPI apply for approved provider status with the MOL?
We will submit a program to the MOL for approval as a training provider for the new Working at Heights program.
Health and Safety Awareness Training for Workers and Supervisors
As of July 1, 2014, every worker and every supervisor should have had their health and safety awareness training. The Ministry of Labour provides online learning modules for each program. It takes about one hour for each worker to complete. You certainly don't have to do the training online. Many employers have in-house training programs that meet the requirements. For more information visit the MOL website. Or contact us! We are happy to answer your questions.
HSPI has taught in-house classes to several customers to assist them in meeting the MOL requirements. If this option interests you, please contact us.
